Great Video: Interesting...Do you know the answers to these questions?

This is great. I personally was against Obama, myself, but I thoroughly believe that most Americans don't know anything about politics or their politicians. I, regretfully, include myself in that, but, I am trying. During this election, I realized how little I really know & I have decided to become more aware & to study it more. It may not be the most exciting subject to study but it is our duty as Americans in order to protect our nation, belief systems, rights, & freedoms.

Their votes counted as much as yours.

The interviews above are backed up by a multiple-choice Zogby poll. Some of the results, via How Obama Got Elected:

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing).
81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing).
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing).
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing).
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes.

Thanks, I hadn't seen that! I was flabbergasted! I know way more about politics this time around and am an Avid Fox News watcher. I am stunned that only 2 of those even knew who Bill Ayers was! STUNNED!

Now I get how Obama got elected!

I know, really, did these people not watch tv or listen to the radio at all?
